Editing DNS configuration manually

To increase efficiency, IPmanager is using the data that is kept in its database. However, it monitors the changes made to the domain zones.

All new PTR records will be imported into the base, and domain names assigned to the IP addresses will be modified. The PTR records that were modified manually will remain in the internal base. IPmanager will keep using them and specify them in the DNS server configuration, if needed.

If there are many reverse zones, we recommend that you disable auto synchronization to increase IPmanager efficiency. Specify the following in the /usr/local/mgr5/etc/ipmgr.conf IPmanager configuration file

 Option NoAutoSync

Restart IPmanager

/usr/local/mgr5/sbin/mgrctl -m ipmgr quit

If IPmanager is installed into a directory that differs from the default one (/usr/local/mgr5), your path.


You may perform synchronization manually, if auto synchronization is disabled or you made changes without increasing the number of the zone. Execute the command:

/usr/local/mgr5/sbin/mgrctl -m ipmgr sync

if you want to synchronize only one zone, you may add the zone parameter, by specifying the zone name:

/usr/local/mgr5/sbin/mgrctl -m ipmgr sync zone=0.168.192.in-addr.arpa
